A new study by The BRIEF Lab shows that Americans are paying less attention than ever.

In a world that is far too often condensed to 140 characters.. it isn't hard to understand why.  We don't have to wait for ANYTHING anymore.  Almost everything is right at our fingertips.  There's always something that we might perceive as "better" on the horizon and therefore we're always looking for it.

The study says that the average American only pays attention for 8 seconds in social situation.  In the office.. it's more like 15-30 seconds.
